Been trying to find a match for a blaock plane the Craftsman sold awhile back. Dead ringer for a Stanley #220, except it is this weird “green” colour….

Maybe a 50s-60s “Aqua” flavour, or maybe a “Teal”?? nah, who would want to paint a plane TEAL?

Locking lever is a chrome thing, with a rusty rivet ( loose too) and the depth setter is also a chromed shiny thing. Iron is thick, and sharp. Trying to take the little guy apart, and got a cut…

Lever cap(????) looks like it was also that greenish tinge. Going out to menards later today ( wiring project) and will take the painted thing along. Teal Plane, imagine that one?

So, I guess that Al is supposed to be hung like a Hamster????
